Today is a good rest day. 10+ hrs sleep last night. Rest day today as I’ve had a good few days exercising and thought I’d better get a nice relaxing day in before it starts all over again next week.
Here’s what I did last week:
Tue: Rest & Edinburgh
Thu: Strength PT
Fri: 5.4M run
Sat: 4M run
Not as much running as I’d hoped but I’ll probably pick that back up next week.
My low carb today will include the following (I’m trying ever so hard not to eat sugar today by the way!):
Poached eggs, chicken, cherry tomatoes
Not sure what dinner will be yet, but I’ve managed to make choices to avoid cakes, millionaire short bread, latte (out at coffee shop) which is quite good.
Next week will be the first week of the start of my 12 week strength training plan. 12 weeks of focussing on strength training and carb cycling.
It’s quite hard having to think about what I should be eating and what I shouldn’t be eating dependant on what exercise I’ve done, but I’m sure it’ll get easier. The focus on improving my food intake is good and makes a change for me.
Here’s my plan for exercise next week:
Mon: Strength / High Carb
(PM: running coaching, long run)
Tue: 5M Run / Med Carb
(Work night out)
Wed: HIIT Strength Circuit / Med Carb (or rest and low carb)
Thu: 4.5M run (speedwork) / Med Carb
Fri: Strength / High Carb
Sat: Rest or Long Run / low or med carb
Sun: Rest / Low carb
